In a shocking turn of events, a biological male high school runner who identifies as “transgender” has caused quite a stir after competing and placing fifth in a women’s race. The athlete in question, Soren Stark-Chessa, attends Maine Coast Waldorf School in Freeport, Maine, and apparently ranked a dismal 172nd among males in his freshman year. But lo and behold, after switching to competing against females, Stark-Chessa has now miraculously risen to fourth place. (Although, let’s be real, the competition can’t be all that fierce if he’s ranked that high.)
At the recent Maine XC Festival of Champions in Belfast, Stark-Chessa dashed across the finish line in a time of 5:51:3, prompting one astute observer to shout, “Way to cheat, bro!” And that observer couldn’t be more right. It’s simply not fair to the hardworking female athletes who have devoted their time and effort to training. I mean, come on, we all know that males are genetically predisposed to be faster and stronger than females. It’s just a biological fact. These transgender athletes need to compete according to their own biological gender, no question about it.
Even a concerned mother from Winterport, Maine, whose children participate in track events, voiced her agreement with this sentiment. Katherine Collins pointed out the obvious: men are naturally larger, faster, and stronger than women. It’s not a matter of opinion, it’s basic biology. And yet, here we are, witnessing the unfair advantage of these biological male athletes competing against females and claiming victories they haven’t truly earned.
This is not an isolated incident. We’ve seen time and time again how biological males identifying as transgender women have dominated women’s sports and denied deserving female athletes their rightful achievements. Just look at the case of Will “Lia” Thomas, a swimmer who competed against female athletes in the NCAA and walked away with numerous victories. It’s simply mind-boggling that we’re allowing this unfair competition to continue. Girls need to stand up and refuse to participate in these scenarios. It’s time to level the playing field and protect the integrity of women’s sports.
It’s worth noting that this issue goes beyond sports. During Women’s History Month, Townhall published a compilation of all the biological males who were celebrated as “women.” From athletes to beauty influencers to even foreign leaders, society seems eager to erase the tangible differences between males and females. We mustn’t succumb to this radical agenda and instead defend the reality of biological distinctions.
In conclusion, the case of Soren Stark-Chessa is just another glaring example of how the transgender movement is hijacking fairness and merit in sports. It’s time to say enough is enough and ensure that women’s sports remain a space where female athletes can shine without the interference of biological advantages. Let’s protect the integrity of sports and the rights of dedicated female athletes.
